A small, historic city in southern Poland, on the banks of the Vistula river, in a region rich in heritage, Baranów Sandomierski is worth the detour to see its castle, one of the most beautiful in the region, boasting a splendid formal garden.

My suggestion:
Part of the castle has been converted into a hotel, which makes a truly special holiday destination! Just imagine waking up surrounded by those gardens...
My review

Nestled in the forelands of the Carpathian Mountains, the small region of Sandomierz is charming. Aside from the lovely town of Sandomierz, the castle of Baranów Sandomierski ("the sheep of Sandomierz") is a little gem with Italian influences. This late-Renaissance castle (late 16th/early 17th Century), erected towards the north of the Vistula river, has certainly retained its grandeur. The castle is well worth a visit, if only to see the beautiful courtyard with its arcades.

For me,though, the highlight of Baranów Sandomierski is the castle's landscaped formal garden, which is particularly opulent and well-maintained. With its boxwood hedges, its gardens and its paths lined with hundred-year-old trees, this is a truly splendid corner in the upper Vistula valley.
